For such a devotee to all things local, Alice Waters sure seems to be going waaay out of everybody’s way for a book-signing this Saturday in San Diego. On December 9th, the queen of Chez Panisse will appear at Rancho Santa Fe’s Chino Farm, whose produce makes frequent appearances on her menus, to sell and sign her new tome, 40 Years of Chez Panisse. Running from 11:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M., Russ Parsons reminds us to get there early, as distance meant nothing for 300 fans of Nancy Silverton’s in November. [LAT]
